ru is a reimplementation of the BSD 'rwhod' and 'ruptime' commands. It doesn't suffer from the performance impact of 'rwhod', scales to hundreds of servers, and supports a variety of platforms. In addition to the features provided by 'ruptime', it supports colorized output, availability reporting, graphing of system load averages using gnuplot, historical storage of system loading, and the grouping of servers.
ROTE is a simple C library for VT102 terminal emulation. It allows the programmer to set up virtual 'screens' and send them data. The virtual screens will emulate the behavior of a VT102 terminal, interpreting escape sequences, control characters and such. The library supports ncurses as well so that you may render the virtual screen to the real screen when you need to.
